Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to find the right attachment for 2 1/2 inch I bought this hoping i'd be able to hook it up to things like my table saw, planer or jointer but the hose size is generally too small for most of my tools. I have gone out and tried 2 separate adapter kits but i can't seem to find the right sized fitting to go from the 1 7/8ths to 2.5 inch. At this point i might as well have spent a bit more just to have the right sized hose to attach to my other tools instead of messing around with various adapters. The good redeeming feature though is it's capacity. I am pretty happy with that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't use bags!!! Picked up this on Black Friday sale for the price of a low-end shopvac thinking that I was getting a deal. I bought this to cleanup drywall dust and so I picked up some high efficiency bag filters. To my surprise there is no way that a bag filter can fit! Also the proprietary Rigid cartridge filter means I can't use Teflon coated cartridge for shopvac. Returned this thing the next day and bought a shopvac.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extension Wands Not securing properly Recently I bought a 60L 5 Peak Rigid Wet Dry Vacuum from Home Depot Canada. It is working well but the locking extension wands are not good enough to use. Though boast of "Locks securely to hose or another wand and won't fall off during use, " It always detach [ even if secured tightly] when I am pulling the wand towards me while vacuuming the carpet area. The locking mechanism does not hold it properly, I think the locking strip and wand material are made of low quality . So giving a three star rating. Otherwise the machine works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Annoying We have this vacuum at our shop. And heaven forbid you have to vacuum something up on the other side of the room. The hose isn't fit securely in so as soon as you move the hose around it pops out. Biggest waste of money ever. This thing is so frustratingly irritating I have nightmares about it. 100% would never buy again and would warn others against it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This was to replace our previous Rigid shop vac which lasted over 10 years. As this was a great product we purchased another one. This one has a stronger motor, a little taller instead of round which makes it easier to store. The attachments are longer which is perfect for clean ups. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Husband very happy with Birthday gift. Great product for low price. Purchased for husband birthday and he is very happy.. works great on small to large cleanings.. he says the reverse blowing option works great on cleaning outside yard debris.. his only complaint was it did not come with enough attachments.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hose Clogs Constantly. This vacuum has a problem. It's not the suction, it's the hose! It clogs constantly. They only way I can use it is to constantly reverse the hose and clean it out. Not recommended. I'm not sure why this product wouldn't be tested better by Home Depot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rigid Vacuum - Good for Concrete Dust Had to clean out dust (still at it) in crawlspace with uneven surface. I did experience a loss of suction but realized it was an unusual clog in the hose that can happen to any shop vac. Once I knocked it free, the suction was good again and at times ran the vacuum for extensive periods of time. I would recommend however the mid filter (blue) for doing this kind of work as the standard filter that comes with it, while it still catches much dust, you'll need a mask with it. Only one thing I would recommend is a narrow end part for sucking up dust and getting into tight spots as I borrowed from another shop vac to do that. Supply that part under Rigid, then its excellent, hence a star deducted for that lack of a part to buy with the Rigid vac. And yes, I looked for that kind of part in the store.

Does this only come with a dry filter? It indicates only the one filter? All of the other brands I've seen have both filters (which makes sense if its a wet/dry vac?). So what about wet pickup? I assume it would need at least a foam sleeve? thanks

Asked by: Ryan
you only need filter for dry applications you take out filter for wet and it works well

I just bought this vacuum from the homedepot.  I wonder if the included filter and dust bag in the box will endure diatomaceous earth, which is really fine dust like drywall dust.  Should I purchase HEPA or better quality filter/dust bag for the job?

Asked by: DHong
I would suggest wearing a good dust mask if your concern is that great. While a dust bag would contain the dust, you still walk in it before attempting with your vacuum. Fine dust like that and say concrete dust gets easily stirred up in the process of vacuuming it regardless of what vacuum you use. Diaomatceous earth is basically "chalk dust" in my estimation, made of diatoms.
